Proof that we're all doomed

If you've paid any attention to me over the last few years, you might have noticed one of my philosophies: while individuals may be very smart, anytime "people" are involved, they're stupid." I offer here further proof to that theory.

My favorite is the baby cage.

Illuminated tires? That's so cool!!! How did the ricers, with all of those neon lights, not pick up on these?

I liked Hugo Gernsback's television glasses (he of the Hugo award for Science Fiction writing). I might finally get to watch an entire game without the kids stepping in front of the screen to get my attention.

And the curved machine gun has come a long ways... they now have an articulated gun with a camera on top of it for shooting around corners in urban warfare!

I've seen the babycage in use, in brooklyn, with a hasidic baby in it.

The illuminated tires look like underglow gone wild. They would never work around here, even underglow isn't street legal.
I wonder what stupid things are being invented as we live and breath today? More weapons of mass destruction, perhaps.

Disease free tapeworms were one of the best weight loss drugs & ideas ever.

I just don't get it. If the tape worm is inside you, consuming the fat, wouldn't you still be carrying the weight?

They turn the fat into tapeworm eggs, which are regularly expelled.

The tapeworm thing is pretty funny. The things people will try.

This one is one of my contemporary favourites:
